We give the general solution of Liouville's equation in Robertson-Walker space-times, and use this to find exact inhomogeneous Einstein-Liouville solutions, using the covariant harmonic method of Ellis, Matravers and Treciokas [1]. The average four-velocity of the gas is tilted, and the gas has nonzero acceleration, shear, energy flux, and anisotropic stress.
